Nzxt kraken m22 custom loop?

 Share

Well as the title says, custom loop with the kraken M22? 

I get that on the x62 etc. it's a nogo to disassemble the unite, since the pump is located in the CPU block, but for the m22 it's located in the radiator, so I don't see any issue with using the CPU block for a custom build? Or am I wrong in my assumption?

Converting an AIO to be a custom loop (which I assume means connecting the CPU and GPU to it at the same time) is a bad idea because their pump can't handle the extra amount of liquid it needs to push in order to circulate the CPU and GPU.  In the M22's case, it's especially a waste of time because it's a rubbish AIO itself. Even a simple tower cooler that's not too cheap can outperform it.

I'll write it again. Since the pump is NOT located in the CPU block but in the radiator. 

To clarify, I am only interested in the CPU block. Not the radiator, not the pump, not the tube, only the CPU block.

you're on your own in trying to connect custom loop tubes to the CPU block without them leaking. I don;t know whether the CPU block's inlet and outlet diameter match what's commonly used in custom loops, but you'd need to pray for that because NZXT wouldnt have taken that into consideration.

Major edit. I'll just wait for someone else to reply on this. Thanks anyway.....

So what's the question, it's been done before with one that contains the pump, so there is even less to worry about with the m22. attaching the fittings in a sensible manner will be the difficult part.

I just wanna run the idea with other people, to make sure I don't overlook something.

But it really doesn't sound like that's how this forum works :/ my bad I'll find another place to ask.

Well, its hard to say anything if you don't ask anything beyond "overlooking something". I don't understand why you wan't to do this beyond taking the CPU block cover, which in that case it would be miles safer to buy a normal CPU waterblock, and place the NZXT shroud over it, in the M22 its just a plastic housing with a PCB under it.
